The Fourth Dimension (company)

The Fourth Dimension was a major publisher of games for the BBC Micro/Electron and Acorn Archimedes/RiscPC between 1989 and 1998. Previously, The Fourth Dimension had been known as Impact Software, which specialised mainly in BBC Micro games.

Following the demise of Acorn and the subsequent contraction of the RISC OS games market, The Fourth Dimension brand and rights to the software back-catalogue was acquired by CJE Micro's (sic), who later sold the rights to the software to APDL, the Archimedes Public Domain Library.
